The challenge: Write 31 slices of daily life on my blog

The fears:

I would run out of ideas,

time,

inspiration,

energy…

 

Keeping me going:

Reading posts about ordinary lives lived in far away places,

Chatting with friends about the craft of writing,

Sharing struggles to post late at night or in the wee hours of the morning,

The orange stickers Sally gave me to mark each slice on the calendar,

The joy of writing

 

Sweet reward:

Slices of life offer a chance to peek into the world of another. These missives brighten my day, broaden my world and help me reflect on my daily choices. I am truly thankful.

  1. You nailed it! “These missives brighten my day, broaden my world and help me reflect on my daily choices. I am truly thankful.” Thank you for your endless encouragement, nudges to participate in our short-lived morning ‘write club,’ and comments that cheered me on. A zillion thanks!

  2. Oops not finished with my comment— I am also thankful for the welcoming and encouraging community of writers that make up the 31 day challenge. You helped carry me through all the way to the end, Beth. Thank you!
